It is $300, not $200. Based on the max cd that beams is really wide too.
A single XHP35 light would be nearly enough for the same brightness after the first 7 seconds, cost a lot less, and have a better beam.
It is rather small and should fit in most women's pockets as well, though it could fit a purse or handbag.
Most of the flashlights look like they were designed by some military or sci-fi dude. :lol:
Not that I like Apple, but maybe they could help design flashlights to be more attractive to normal people and especially women.
So the new v2 version has higher lumens in the brightest mode, but the run time must be ridiculously short. V1 only lasts about 30 minutes before it is almost dead.
There is no decent middle output; it needs a 200 lumen mode.
So I'm looking for a headlamp with good brightness and high cri.
I still use my hc90, works great, but I have a need to illuminate when mowing in the evening hours, now that it's getting pretty dark by 6pm. The hc90 doesn't give me the definition I'm looking for when mowing and trimming. Will only be used on lawns where I've previously cut during daylight, so I'll already be aware of hazards.
